• This avocet has long, thin, gray legs with black and white plumage on the back and white on the underbelly. The neck and head are cinnamon in the summer and gray in the winter. The long, thin bill is curved upward and the avocet sweeps it back and forth in the water to feed. Chicks walk, swim, and feed themselves.
